Meanie's site is full of useful information.
If you install a package in Cacko/Sharp and get the above message, just uninstall it, then open a console and install it this way. Then you'll get more useful messages as to what the dependencies are.
CODE
ipkg install /home/Documents/Install_Files/packagename.ipk

Your path to your new package may be different, just change the path accordingly.

Another method to find dependencies, is to search the forum, or find a feed that has the same package and download the "Packages" file.
The "Packages" file is just a text file and should have a description and dependencies listed for your package.
If you use Windows to try to read the "Packages" file, just open it in wordpad, and copy/paste it to notepad and save as Packages.txt
Wordpad will convert the utf8 text formatting to something you can read in windows.

What ever happened to the simplicity of just running the standard "ldd" command?

It doesn't come on the Z, but is easy to get and use.

it's not useful if you can't find the name and version of the package that contains a suitable copy of the missing shared library, or if the dependency isn't a shared library at all but something else

fortunately, the package dependencies are stored in the package file:

CODE
tar zxOf whatever.ipk ./control.tar.gz | tar zxOf - ./control | grep '^Depends: '
